More changes than you might think for a minor release. As usual, any errors/omissions to me. Note the new Snow Leopard or later OS requirement.

Just out of curiosity. Is there any reason that the Stamp menu is no longer available except by keyboard in the latest upgrade? I was still there in 5.10.1.

I see no 'Stamp' menu. The 'Stamps' menu** is still there but only when a major view has focus. TB actually has 3 different top level menus:
However, a change in v5.10.2 is that a Stamp can no longer be used inline in action code simply by Stamp name. I assume that in the recent under-the-hood overhaul of action code the old method proved difficult to support (vs. likely upside). Anyhow, for comment on the internals of the app you'd be better mailing Eastgate direct as we users can see that deeply into the app.

** I'm not being pedantic, as elsewhere the app has different 'Color' and 'Colors' sub-menus!

The Stamps menu is unchanged from previous releases.

Thanks. Interesting that I had opened and used TB three times since upgrading and each time the Stamp menu did not appear. Tonight just before heading to bed, I tried and, lo and behold, it now appears in the menu. Whatever happened seemed to right itself. Which I am glad to see. :)
